Photos that stand out. Part 3

Well, it's about time that I showed you another five photos that I think stand out from the crowd.This group differs from the previous ones just a little, as it has a black and white photo included. Black and white tends to get a little overlooked these days but can be very striking when done well.One other thing about these photos is that they don't really need any further explanation, they speak for themselves. Of course, this is just my opinion and we all have different tastes and perceptions.... continue reading

A day out with my camera

Tomorrow I am going to my first ever proper photography event. The local birds of prey centre has photography days every now and then, and I am going to one.The reason I am going is because my camera-related behaviour has led my family to view me as a cause for concern. It’s the school summer holidays in England at present, which means that it has been raining quite a bit. This, alongside my attempts to keep my son from permanently attaching himself to things with screens, has rather limited... continue reading

Photos that stand out Part 2

Some of you might have seen an earlier blog about photos that, for me, stood out in some way. Bettina (Bwagner656) pointed out that the majority had contrasting colours, which, when I looked back was right and yet at the time of posting, I hadn't realised. Since then, when I've been out with the camera, I've tried to look for colourful contrasts and so far, it's been more difficult than I thought. I'm still quite new to photography, so it's a case of trying to look at everything differently and not... continue reading

Starting Out by Dipping My Toe in the Water... Literally

I'm just starting out. I've made exactly $4.47 from selling stock photography so far. Alas, none of that is on Dreamstime. Apparently the search algorithms on other sites are more favorable to me than this one. I'm not quitting my day job.I started out by simply uploading my best photos. I didn't take those photos for stock photography. I took them as a hobby. My hobby is hiking in the mountains, mostly in California, and finding and identifying wildflowers. I don't think it will shock anyone... continue reading

Photos that stand out.

Being fairly new to photography, I look at a great many photos of on Dreamstime, to try and learn from different people, some of them also beginners but also those that have thousands of uploads (and downloads too)Sometimes, I'll see a photo and it immediately say's "Yes" to me because it has that certain something. I know others will not agree with these choices but it's about that initial reaction. Anyway, here are some of those photos that (to me) have made me think "I wish I'd taken that"... continue reading
